Wolf’s Lair was the most important of Hitler’s headquarters, hidden in Masuria, a region of Northern Poland famous for its 2.000 lakes. It was the perfect place to set up an inaccessible complex of bunkers with lakes and swamps blocking its access. The complex, which would become one of several Führer Headquarters located in various parts of occupied Europe, was built for Operation Barbarossa's start – the invasion of the Soviet Union – in 1941. The top-secret, high-security site was in the Masurian woods about 8 km from the small East Prussian town of Rastenburg (now Kętrzyn in Poland). Three security zones surrounded the central complex where Führer’s bunker was located. Despite the security, an assassination attempt against Hitler was made at Wolf’s Lair on 20 July 1944. On the 25th of January 1945, due to the Red Army's rapid advance, the complex was blown up and abandoned.

One can find an excellent eatery in the former guard's garage where classic Polish cuisine is served. It’s a good idea t take a 1-hour break and refill before the drive back to Warsaw. Food is not included in the tour price.

Wolf Lair Review
Natedebrun, 05-08-2022
This was a fantastic tour - a truly wonderful day. Both Martin and Jadwiga were fantastic tour guides. We saw so much and our tour guides were very personable and very knowledgeable.

Martin exceeded our expectations even more by taking us to a small town to see German bunkers that were not destroyed at the end of the war and took us to a waterside town for a lively dinner.
Bucket list Adventure Hitlers Bunker
Schubert-Lacinski, 03-08-2022
A bucket list adventure. We had seen many films about the wolfs lair and Hitlers Bunker system, and were interested to see it for ourselves. It exceeded our expectations. We were picked up exactly on time by Marcin, in a very comfortable mini van. The journey up takes you through countryside. Interesting to see the style of architecture change as we went through polish then into the Marsaurin lake area which has German house styles. The trip takes 11 hours. Four hours to drive up and 3 hours to walk around the bunkers and woodlands around the bunker complex. Before coming back as the sunsets over the fields. The guide was knowledgeable and took us into areas where only guides can go. After we had a great authentic polish lunch and talked with our guide about what we had seen and swapped ideas.
A totally immersive day discussing WW2 and the impact on Polands history from a Polish perspective.
Excellent tour!
